Out in the desert of New Mexico there are patches of land that belong to the Native American tribes of the area and patches of land that are part of the United States. The distinction between which land belongs to whom is not the distinction that is important, but the fact that many ways of life have died and this is a great place to show an example of one.
Most of the time we think of Italian vehicles as the sports cars and the small but fun to drive city cars. We sometimes forget the automakers in Italy have created some of the most interesting and comfortable sedans as well as giving us two opposite ends of the spectrum. We can forget about the growling beasts that make their way on the track for now and the small but fun city cars and let these sedans have the spotlight for a moment even if most of them no longer are made for us to enjoy.
Dependability is not something to take lightly. Your car needs to be there for you and take you through the daily driving you encounter without any issues. When you have a car that breaks down on a regular basis you leave dependability in the wind and even getting to work can be a huge challenge for you. If you have decided 2016 is the year you will buy a dependable vehicle that will ensure you can get to and from work each and every day, here is the list from JD Power for you to consider making your own for this new year.
The Golf Race Car concept was shown off at many different auto shows last year and apparently there was enough of a following that this car has now been made into a full-fledged racer by using a name we know and love.

As bad as the driver of the larger vehicle may feel, they only can see what their eyes and the picture in their mind allows them to see, which can be only a small portion of the actual visual field around them.
In the cat and mouse game that is played between the media and automakers there has been once again photos of an upcoming vehicle leaked ahead of the debut. Does this really come as any surprise to anyone at this point? It sure doesn’t surprise me and the fact that we will get an up close and personal look at the new Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk at the New York Auto Show it seems to be more of a publicity ploy by Jeep than something that the brand would be concerned with.

Do you use your truck for work? Is this your mobile office on a daily basis where you need to be able to keep all your tools and the materials for the jobs you do? If this sounds like you then you know the frustration of using a truck tool box where you have to give up some of your bed space and the tools you need inevitably make it to the bottom center of the box.
